Must be part of the liberal anti gun agenda…….

Detroit police James Craig said State Sen. Virgil Smith was arrested over the weekend on allegations of aggravated assault and malicious destruction of property.

Sources told Local 4 that Smith, who represents the fourth district, fired several shots into his girlfriend’s car during an argument outside the home at Wexford and Hildale on Detroit’s east side. Craig said officers went to the home about 1 a.m. Sunday on a report of domestic violence.

“The Senator has been cooperative with our investigation since the beginning,” said Craig. “He is still in custody.”

Cops: Mich. senator fired shots after argument with…

Craig spoke to the media Monday morning and wouldn’t go into details about his investigation but did say a weapon was recovered during a search at the home.

“We did recover a weapon. It’s unknown if that weapon was used in the malicious destruction of property,” he said.

Sources told Local 4 that Smith and his girlfriend, a prominent businesswoman from Ann Arbor, had been arguing. Police said the victim told them multiple shots were fired in front of the home. Sources said the woman was not injured, but that her 2015 Mercedes Benz was struck by gunfire.

Craig said as far as he knows this is the only contact his department has ever had with Smith.

As for any possible charges, a spokeswoman with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office said the office received a warrant request for this on Monday. The office is requesting further investigation from the Detroit Police Department.

It strikes me funny that so many of these anti gun politicians are gun owners and sometimes users………

New Taurus Curve gun review

New type of gun and innovative.

Personally I loath 380’s but they are good conceal carry and this gun is obviously designed for just that. It has built in Laser and LED lights and a belt clip attached. it also has some Kalifornia compliant features, Like a detached magazine safety and low mag capacity (6+1)

As far as I can tell MSRP is just under $400 so is affordable too. Even if it is not popular and does not sell it will probably be a collectors item for the kids some day because of it unique nature.

Please do not forget Dawgs birthday coming up………..

A fully functional replica of a Lightcycle from the movie ‘Tron: Legacy’ has been sold at auction by Sotheby’s for a whopping $77,000 (£50,000).

The electric bike was sold as part of The Andrews Collection – the biggest auto collection auction in history – over the weekend, where it defied expectations selling for a lot more than the predicted guide price of $25,000-$40,000.


The bike, which was built specifically for the Andrews collection in 2012, has a 96 volt, direct-drive electric motor, a computer-controlled throttle, and hydraulic brakes.

A fully functional replica of a Lightcycle from the movie ‘Tron: Legacy’ has been sold at auction by Sotheby’s for a whopping $77,000 (£50,000).

The electric bike was sold as part of The Andrews Collection – the biggest auto collection auction in history – over the weekend, where it defied expectations selling for a lot more than the predicted guide price of $25,000-$40,000.

The bike, which was built specifically for the Andrews collection in 2012, has a 96 volt, direct-drive electric motor, a computer-controlled throttle, and hydraulic brakes.

Although it’s said to be “fully functional”, the bike has only ever been ridden around the Andrews facility in Forth Worth, so we’re not sure it’s likely to be fully road worthy.


The Lightcycle was first introduced in Disney’s cult sci-fi film ‘Tron’ back in 1982 as a fully CGI creation before it was reinvented for the 2012 sequel ‘Tron: Legacy’ as a physical prop.

Whether it’ll return for ‘Tron 3′, which begins shooting later this year, we’ll have to wait to find out, but it’s clear that whoever bought this faithful recreation must be a hardcore ‘Tron’ fan.

Nasa: No Warp Drive Here

Despite the fevered reports rocketing around the Internet recently, NASA is not on the verge of developing a fuel-free, faster-than-light propulsion system, space agency officials stress.

A team based at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston reportedly tested a prototype engine system in a vacuum recently and determined that it produced a small amount of thrust. This news was disclosed on a NASASpaceflight.com forum earlier this year, and last week, it hit the broader Internet with a vengeance, as some pieces linked the technology to a long-sought “warp drive.”

Why all the attention? The novel thruster system is based on the EmDrive, a British invention said to create thrust without propellant by bouncing microwaves around inside a chamber. If it works, the engine could revolutionize spaceflight — and it would apparently violate the laws of physics, as well. [Superfast Spacecraft Propulsion Concepts (Images)]

But NASA is downplaying the research and its potential to deliver a huge propulsion breakthrough in the near future.

“While conceptual research into novel propulsion methods by a team at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston has created headlines, this is a small effort that has not yet shown any tangible results,” NASA officials told Space.com in a statement. “NASA is not working on ‘warp drive’ technology.”

The novel space engine design would seem to produce more energy than is put into it, violating the law of conservation of energy, which (simply put) says that energy cannot be destroyed or created.

“The reason it’s controversial is, it violates Newton’s Third Law,” Brian Koberlein, an astrophysicist who studies general relativity and computational astrophysics, told Space.com.

It’s possible that electromagnetic leaks in the chamber or coupling with Earth’s magnetic field are responsible for the supposedly impossible result, said Koberlein, who is based at the Rochester Institute of Technology. But the recent test in the vacuum chamber, if it is indeed valid, does rule out another prosaic explanation — that the engine was pushing against Earth’s atmosphere in some way, he added.

Retro of the day: Steve Winwood

“Roll with It” is the fifth solo studio album by blue-eyed soul artist Steve Winwood. It topped the album charts in the United States, and has sold over three million copies. The title cut topped the pop singles and the album rock singles charts with subsequent hit status afforded the album tracks released as subsequent singles: “Don’t You Know What the Night Can Do?” and “Holding On”. “Don’t You Know What the Night Can Do?” had been written by Winwood to be featured in an ad campaign for Michelob which began running on American television on the day of the Roll With It album’s US release. Two other tracks from Roll With It: “Hearts on Fire” and “Put on Your Dancing Shoes”, also achieved radio airplay.
